2. Tunnel Trails "Sliced Apple" Half Marathon

All half marathon "Sliced Apple" runners will board a bus at the Elroy City Park (Schultz Park) in Elroy at 
7:00 a.m. and head north to the charming village of Hustler, Wisconsin.  Runners will have approximately 30 minutes to use the rest rooms, stretch out, and use our bag-and-tag service.  The race will begin at 8:00 a.m. The runners will head north on the Omaha Trail for about one mile before turning around and heading back through Hustler and on their way to Elroy.  Runners will pass through the tunnel after about six miles of the run.  The tunnel was built in 1876 and is 875 feet long!  Upon entering Elroy, the course will use a side street to go through Elroy, including running on a covered bridge and past the Elroy Commons, now using the 400 Trail.  The 400 Trail will lead the runners back 
to the Elroy City (Schultz) Park for the finish line.
